There’s A Monastery Hidden In Oregon And You’ll Want To Visit

Sometimes the constant stress of everyday life can wear us down and we need to retreat to a quiet, peaceful place. If you’re feeling a little overwhelmed, you might want to consider a visit to The Priory Of Our Lady Of Consolation – a beautiful monastery in Amity, Oregon that’s not only quiet… it has a sweet secret!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

Learn more about the monastery on its website, and follow the Brigittine Monks’ gourmet fudge and truffles business on its Facebook page.
